've been gutting the mental health system. we had a terrible lack of education. there's no reason why we can't have more firearm awareness in schools. and security officers. but the thing of it is we can pass legislation for laws that prohibit gun sales and weaponry which relatively easy but the other three are going to take a lot of money. that's where the rubber meets the road if you will. i just don't see our legislatures being brave enough to do any of that. >> peter: that's a good point david. that's the tricky thing with all of this. there is not a one-size-fits-all solution that everybody can agree on. there are a lot of layers to this. you've got the mental health, the education and the actual control on not only guns but the ammunition. >> bill: i saw a guy yesterday at legislative in connecticut saying we can't ban sales on multiple ammunition because that would interfere with people's second amendment rights. that's baloney. b.s. the constitution was written when people have single shot muskets. i'm for allowing a single shot musket in every home in america. >> peter: what's y
